Anyway, if the NHL were to disband and owners wanted to start a new league, there wouldn't be any canadian teams in it cause well, the the money is worthless.


Even if canada started it own league and it only had Canadian teams in the league, it coudln't compete financially with the American teams and all the good players would play in the states cause of the money.
I hate to admit it, but you are probably right! Realistically many top Europeans would have left the NHL years ago to play back in their homeland, but the money just doesn't cut it there. The saddest part of what you said is that all the good players would go to the States where yes there is more money, but the game by and large is lost on the American people.
